Thursday saw dire efforts to find the missing Malaysian Airlines jet, which suddenly got lost two weeks back with 239 passengers in it. Aircraft and ships searched as best as they can to trace any kind of floating objects in the ocean.
The Australian officials said that the most promising find in the recent times by the searchers were the satellite images obtained four days ago, which showed signs of large objects floating on the water.
A Norwegian merchant ship was incorporated in the area for the ‘credible hunt’ but officials cautioned that it could take days to affirm whether the objects were part of Boeing 777. The large objects were spotted around 2500 km southwest of Perth, an area corresponding to the far end of a southern track which the investigators believe that the aircraft could have taken after it was deviated from its specified route.
Tony Abott, the Prime Minister of Australia himself revealed about the discovery of floating objects. It was the March 16 satellite images which showed such things.
The dimensions of the objects do indicate that they can be of that missing aircraft, however the Australian officials cautioned that the first image obtained was indistinct.
